Google Analytics for Joomla!Google Analytics Tweaks for Joomla

It should be the perfect marriage; open-source CMS Joomla and a free web analytics tool like Google Analytics. Unfortunately this isn't always the case. Getting the most out of a Google Analytics implementation on your Joomla website can be quite tricky. It involves having a Google Analytics plugin that tracks the most important visitor data. No plugin is perfect. It is difficult to tracks different Joomla components and modules with a plugin.

That's why we tweak. We create simple additional plugins or hacks to create more insight and we edit some of the code of plugins to better understand the way your website visitors use their functionalities. We try to make these instructions as easy as possible, but some of the tweaks may still require some basic coding skills to implement. Our list of Google Analytics tweaks for Joomla will grow as we get more questions on our website. We are happy to receive input from our readers.
